February UK election update

Today in the FT there was this interesting article basically debunking the idea of a February poll that had been mooted during the weekend. So it seems that we are still due for an election on May 5th (when the local elections are also to be held). It seems to say that some ministers got into a bit of ill-advised speculation that prompted the stories.

This only confirms my general feelings about most political stories that are supposedly about Tony Blair and Number 10 - mostly its just journalists repeated the specualtive hopes of various Labourites and offers no real insight into the inner workings of this government.

Nothing else really of interest in the paper today.
